Fleet Feet Offers Training Resolutions For 2024
MADISON- The 2024 training programs hosted by Fleet Feet of Madison and Huntsville are geared towards helping those who may have the desire to get started in running, assist those who want to better their already established times in certain races and any individual who may want to begin a program.
The new year brings a new schedule of running events across the Tennessee Valley and Fleet Feet of Madison/Huntsville has training programs set for the next 12 months to assist a runner of any caliber to reach their goals set forth by each individual runner.
On the surface, it looks simple enough to zip through a training program and tackle any race your legs take you to, but especially for novice runners, the challenge of prepping for an athletic endeavor should be faced up front knowing it takes hard work and determination to compete. Many of the challenges that are brought to the forefront for any runner is made up of tiny pieces of the endeavor that must fall into place. Training programs arranged by Fleet Feet help those pieces of the puzzle come together with major success.
Fleet Feet Sports has a bevy of training programs on tap for 2024. The programs are geared towards runners of all calibers, but non-runners are also invited to join in an attempt for better health.
“The Madison running community is healthy and committed to fitness in 2024,” said Suzanne Swift, owner of Fleet Feet Sports.
One of the most attended programs on a yearly basis is the Half-Marathon Training with the main focus on the Bridge Street Half-Marathon scheduled for Sunday, April 7 or the Oak Barrel Half-Marathon set for April 6. The 12-week program, which began Jan. 9, is held at both the Madison and Huntsville locations of Fleet Feet. Education on proper form, pacing, fueling, stretching and more will be in the forefront by expert coaches on hand to assist any level of participant. The program also includes a daily running schedule as group runs are held each Tuesday and Saturday. Head coaches for the program are Paul Moeller in Madison and Julia Donovan in Huntsville.
“We are excited to offer a 12-week half-marathon training program for the Bridge Street event and we are looking forward to offering more training programs this Spring, especially in Madison,” added Swift.
